Letting True Perception Heal Our Minds

Trusting [the truth in] your brothers is essential to establishing and holding up your faith in your ability to transcend doubt and lack of sure conviction in yourself. ²When you attack a brother, you proclaim that he is limited by what you have perceived in him. ³You do not look beyond his errors. ⁴Rather, they are magnified, becoming blocks to your awareness of the Self that lies beyond your own mistakes, and past his seeming sins as well as yours.

…if a brother’s sins occur to us, our narrowed focus will restrict our sight, and turn our eyes upon our own mistakes, which we will magnify and call our “sins.” ³So, for a little while, without regard to past or future, should such blocks arise we will transcend them with instructions to our minds to change their focus, as we say:

⁴It is not this that I would look upon.
⁵I trust my brothers, who are one with me.

…as our focus goes beyond mistakes, we will behold a wholly sinless world. ⁴When seeing this is all we want to see, when this is all we seek for in the name of true perception, are the eyes of Christ inevitably ours. ⁵And the Love He feels for us becomes our own as well. ⁶This will become the only thing we see reflected in the world and in ourselves. (A Course in Miracles, W-181.1;6:2-5;8:3-6. See also ACIM Lesson 181 Insights.)

The ego is a lie and cannot be trusted. If our perceptions are directed by the ego, they cannot be trusted. We are accustomed to assuming our perceptions are correct because we have identified with the ego. But the ego is not our identity; neither is it our brother’s identity.

We are called to trust the truth in our brother — the one Self that unites us with every brother and our Father. When we use the affirmation suggested in this lesson, we are reminding ourselves not to trust the ego’s perception. We are affirming that we want to see the one Self that unites us with our brother. This Self extends only Love, being an extension of God’s Love.

This is a practice that leads to remembering the Love we are.
